BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 A.M.) – The Russian Air Force continued their new campaign on Tuesday to survey the jihadist positions across the Idlib Governorate.
According to a military source in the Latakia Governorate, the Russian IL-20 spy planes were seen flying over the jihadist positions in the Idlib demilitarized zone.
The Russian IL-20 spy planes have been conducting these reconnaissance flights in response to the constant jihadist attacks on the Syrian government forces in the Latakia, Aleppo, Hama, and Idlib provinces.
Since the Sochi Agreement was established on September 17th, the Idlib buffer zone has remained a hostile area in northwestern Syria.
As a result of the ongoing hostilities, the Syrian Arab Army has made the decision to build up their forces in northern Hama and southern Idlib, as they prepare to kickoff a new offensive against the jihadist rebels.
